The Australian Sailing and Cruising Club is a club for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people and their friends in Sydney and across Australia. We welcome boats and boaters of all types – sail, power, dinghy, windsurf, kite, kayak – if it floats, you’re welcome to join in!
The Club is based in Sydney and organises regular events during the year both on the water and the land – guests and visitors to Sydney are welcome – you don’t have to own a boat to be a member.
Our Social meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month, at the Trovata Restuarant (76 Stanley St, East Sydney, 1st floor). All are welcome.
Note also, that is the weather is good on other weekends, there is a decent chance that some member’s will be taking their boats out for an “unofficial” event, usually planned last minute, once forecasts are available.
The fun ASCC annual regatta is on Saturday 22nd February.
All information, including Notice of Race, Sailing Instructions, and Entry Forms are now up, with full information here
Well it is with the ASCC – come to the Beach Day at Balmoral Beach on Sunday 19th Jan form 12.30 where you can rent Kyaks, Hobie Catamarans or Windsurfers from Balmoral Sailing School (booking advised) or just laze around in the sunshine which has been forecast for the weekend.
Don’t forget your towel and sunblock. Directions here.
For anyone interested in joining a gay flotilla holiday in the Caribbean this is your chance.
